GUN THREAD... your last hold to freedom....Answers to questions you have been afraid to ask
My guns have saved my life, fed my family, and given me confidence. Guns should be treated with the up most care. You should not own a gun if you have never trained with one.

There are a lot of people out there that have the wrong idea about guns because they where to afraid to ask questions about them. Here is your chance to learn.

If you have had training using guns, please feel free to add your 2 cents to teach people what they need to know about them.

If ever our guns are taken away from us by TPTB, we are done as a free society.

Okay i'll start. My recommended Hand Gun would be a 9mm for several reasons. The most important reason is the availability of the Ammo if all hell broke lose in the world.

My recommendation for a shotgun is a 20 gauge. The reason for this is it can be handled well by the women and if necessary, your younger family members.... a lot less kick than a 12 gauge.

How many times have you past a gun shop and wondered about stopping in but where afraid to? Don't be, go inside and you will see its like any other store. They will help you find the best weapon for your needs and also train you how to use it.

Get inside that firing range and try it out. I guarantee you after you do it you will ask yourself why you waited so long.

 Quoting: Gabriel


I'd say a good recommendation for target practice, but for a real defense situation, get something in 45. Even if 9mm will be more plentiful in a SHTF scenario, you won't need nearly as much 45 ammo.

Very true, but i prefer knowing i can get the ammo. I have high capacity clips so i can shoot a lot of rounds without changing clips.

I have a 25 clb myself. Very small, good for my boot. Better than a 22 but won't stop much. It will however make a big bang which is all you need scare off ... things. Edit to add... good price but fire it at the range to make sure its okay.

No serious firearms instructor will ever counsel you to fire into the air. In fact, they will tell you that if you have time to fire a warning shot at all, you're probably not legally justified to shoot at all.

Buy what there will be lots of surplus ammo for. If a lot of
people don't own them don't buy them.

.22 cheap, hump with a 1000 rds, easy to find ammo

9mm average stopping power, lot of owners

45acp great stopping power, been around since 1911

12 gauge, EVERY RURAL HOUSEHOLD OWNS A SHOTGUN IN AMERICA

223 US army still uses it and could be obtained

7.62 x 39. millions of SKS ans AK's have bees sold here
and people used to be able to buy surplus ammo cheap and most have lots of ammo still around.

If I was buying ammo to trade as curency I would buy 22's and 12gauge

My choice:

.22LR for pesky varmints

.45 ACP for the handguns

12 Ga for the shotguns

.223/5.56 for the MBR

7.62x54R for long range engagement

YMMV, but for me it fits the bill and doesnt cost a fortune.

Re: GUN THREAD... your last hold to freedom....Answers to questions you have been afraid to ask
OP, I am interested in purchasing my first gun, a pistol. I'm leaning towards a .40 cal Glock. I wanted to get the GEN 4 glock. It was a S&W. I get confused about that, it could be a Glock, but a Smith & Wesson glock? Although Glock is also a manufacturer? Sorry, I'm a noob.

Anyway...what do you think?

Good point.

The gathering of massive amounts of ammo should only be done if TSHTF and you need to come together as a community or neighborhood to defend yourself from the certain onslaught of the dog eat dog world we will have to put up with. I wouldn't want to live near a big city when it happens.
